What are we planting
This year we’re planting some ground cover flowering natives in amongst the middle to upper storey reveg of the last few years adjacent to the vineyard, plus extending last year’s reveg around the vegetable garden.
The bigger picture
Ngeringa’s focus on restoring native bush to their farm is rebuilding habitat for seriously declining woodland species and extending the habitat value of the remnant scrub on the overlooking Mount Barker Summit. Hills Biodiversity, Ngeringa, Howard Vineyard and a growing number of private landholders in the region are banding together to restore creek lines and paddocks as part of the Springs to Summit project. Jump on board if you too would like to extend the area much needed by the Summit to protect against species loss, rebuild healthy and diverse ecosystems – as a landholder or as a volunteer. This year, in addition to the above, Ngeringa will also be planting paddock trees to help recreate that open grassy woodland the Mount Barker Summit region once was, and more flowering tea-tree & Christmas bush amongst the vines for beneficial insect habitat.
